Hello, and thank you in advance!

I've linked a picture of my basic setup at the bottom of this post. I'm using the Evolv ATX case from Phanteks and thinking of using one of the inlets on the D5 Photon pump/res combo as a drain (it has two inlets and one outlet on it's base)



I need some help designing the drain. I'm assuming I want a flexible hose for the drain with some type of valve attached. I'm guessing it's as simple as getting some PVC hose 8mm/10mm, and then something like this? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17445/ex-tub-1563/Bitspower_G14_Mini_Valve_-_Deluxe_White_BP-MVV-DWBK.html

Then get a 10mm/12mm compression fitting to attach the tubing to the valve.

But how would I attach that valve to the res/pump? What adapter is needed for this? Sorry for the noobness. Help appreciated!

You need a T-Block and a Fitting Extender.

Your setup can look like this:



I would put the T-Block here:


Simply push a barb fitting on to the end of a piece of hose. When you wanna drain, just lightly screw it to the valve and open it up. When you're done, just unscrew the length of hose.

The way I have it is I did this

to a piece of tubing then to a stop fitting like this

I just keep the tube in my case full time hidden either in the basement or behind the motherboard tray. When it comes time to drain, take the right side panel off, pull the hose down, unscrew the stop and let it drain.

That is the cheaper way to go about the drain as all of the parts for it will cost about the same as just the valve you linked.
